Another factor that makes these chairs a good choice is the fact that they are easier to move around without being an encumbrance. For example, in an office setting, it is easier to push in and pull out armless chairs from the office table than it is to do so with a chair fitted with arms. A final point that should be mentioned is the affordability of these chairs relative to chairs fitted with arms of the same caliber; such upholstered chairs are definitely more affordable in this regard.
These size designations have more to do with the chair user's height than weight. However, if a shorter chair user requires a wider seat or extra lifting capacity, wide chairs come in their own versions of Small, Medium, and Large, etc. That way someone who is short, but who weighs a lot will have a chair that fits more comfortably than a traditional sized lift chair made for someone much taller.
Why "allowable"? Well throughout history chairs have reflected the status of the person sitting on them. The size, decoration and sheer ornateness of the chair saying a lot about the person sitting in it. Indeed in classical times to the time of the pharaohs, the chair was reserved for the high and mighty, only kings, lords and bishops were allowed chairs at all, the rest of the populace had to do with sitting on chests, benches or stools.
